Christmas/Winter Wedding

So I am in the midst of planning my dream wedding! Since I am a complete and total Christmas lover, I am telling my family and fiance that I would like to wait to have the wedding in December of 2008 (preferably the first Saturday of December) so that it can be Christmas/Winter themed. I am going to be viewing venues in the upcoming weeks because I was told that I need to try to nail one down ahead of time because companies tend to take over these venues with corporate Christmas parties during December. I was thinking about color schemes and options and narrowed it down to two themes and of course, I'm turning it over to my fellow Christmas fanatics to help me decide!

A fun Christmas party:
Colors: Red, green and gold
Decorate with Christmas trees. Have Christmas cookies as party favors with a few do-it-yourself decorations at each table.

A formal Winter Wonderland
Colors: White and silver
Decorate with faux snow, bare trees that have been spray painted silver, snowflakes, etc.
Favors will likely be hand-painted silver and white sugar cubes.

(of course we'll be toasting with hot chocolate and egg nog instead of champagne!)

Has anyone else done a winter/Christmas wedding? Any ideas?

I worked with a woman who had a winter themed wedding. Her bridesmaids wore deep red dresses. The florist made up arrangements for the tables withe pine boughs, pinecones and holly. It was beautiful.

My daughter was going to have a winter wedding in January 2009, but because of school she has changed it to Oct. 3 2008. Her colors were going to be ice blue, silver, and white. Now her colors are red and white. I think any one of the color choices you choose would be beautiful. I really like using silver and white for a winter wedding though. Congratulations!

holly ooooooooooooo, I wish I could come!

I am in the minority so far, but I think the red and green with Christmas cookies sounds so wonderful. I didn't have a wedding and am divorced now, but just the thought of a Christmasy wedding like that almost makes me want to get married again!

Either will be wonderful!

I so wanted to have a Christmas wedding! Unfortunately, DH and I both worked for the same company that was run by a couple of right old Scrooges who refused to allow anyone to take any time off at Christmas...for any reason.

I think the silver and white would be beautiful, maybe with a bit of blue to accent? The trees with silver sound lovely and I've been to December weddings where they used a lot of "Christmas" greenery and accents to create the centerpieces...absolutely breathtaking!
